  • almost have my Cox 2E finished

    I started collecting the parts in the 80s, it's been off and on at garage sales. I had so much trouble finding someone to repair the motor since it's chassis specific, and I had to send it across the US to do it, but i got rebuilt. So while at home I did some more work on it and have it basically finished, but I need to create an interior for it.

    It has seen some track use, there is a scratch over the right headlight and the windscreen has a small crack in it, I had to recreate the arm that operates the wing from piano wire. It's also over restored, but I don't really care.

        Great to see your pictures of that Cox chassis.

          Someone was selling replacement windshields and headlight covers on Ebay for these and other cars. I bought a new rear window for a Cox Cheetah, and it is as good as new. If you want to replace the cracked one, you could try a search there.
